"Some days your ..." Quote of Melinda M Marshall

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Some days your hat's off to the full-time mothers for being able to endure the relentless routine and incessant policing seven days a week instead of two. But on other days, merely the image of this woman crafting a brontosaurus out of sugar paste and sheet cake for her two-year-old's birthday drives a stake through your heart.
